, people like joe manchin. >> from the rural states. >> exactly. joe donnelly. heidi heitkamp from north dakota. those are people that need convincing they can make the leap on gun control measures if they're willing. >> it's a tricky issue for the white house. on one hand you have some on the left who sit there and say the white house has been lacking any sort of spine when it comes to gun issue. there's the political reality staring them in the face. heidi heitkamp. >> i would add two other challenges for the white house. one is the timeline. already people aren't paying attention to this as much as they were in december. the media coverage is dwindling, of course. the second is, you have a lot of well meaning groups on the democratic side who are running in many different directions. and the nra is a formidable opponent. >> it's interesting. that's a very important key here. you know, michael bloomberg sort of doing this. you have a group with ties to move on to doing that. white house during their thing. the nra sticking to plan. >> absolutely. of all the groups the only one that's r
not too long ago. the question is will they go single digit? on abc this week senator joe manchin had some things to say about getting things done in both chambers. listen to this, and i'll get your reaction. >> okay. >> i've yet to have a bipartisan meeting that's been organized where republicans and democrats in the senate sit down and work through their problems. think about just in the senate we don't have that type of dialogue going on from democrats and republicans. we don't even know our colleagues over in the house. >> don't even know our colleagues over in the house. you know, the whole fiscal cliff negotiations, we saw that. speaking all throughout the lead up to that deal coming down. members of the house didn't know what was happening over in the senate, and even as the senator was saying there, senators not knowing what the leadership in the senate were doing. >> well, so to go to manu's point, too, when we're going from crisis to crisis it's important to remember that congress has created these crises, not something sprung upon them, their inability to negotiate long-term dea
new york times" today, democrat joe manchin of west virginia has faced doubts within his constituency who feel the second amendment is in jeopardy. "the times" describes the senator's attempts to reassure his constituents about the political climate in washington. he said i see no movement, no talk, no bills, no nothing. they remained skeptical. we give up our rights one piece at a time. a banker named charlie houck. he actually had a meeting and said how many of you are concerned you're going to lose your second amendment rights? all the hands went up. that shows how difficult it's going to be, even at this table, it seems to clear what needs to be done. that's not the way everybody feels. >> i'm disappointed mr. scarborough is not at this table because we had a heated one-on-one about first and second amendment about video games, comparing it to slippery slope on the second amendment. i've done a lot of research since then. i want to go back at him on that. this is a black-and-white issue again. to draw the line and say that in some way, shape or form we are going back to the founde
that senator joe manchin, a democrat from west virginia a man you know very well said to us last sunday. >> it has to be comp hencive and that's what i have tried to t l tell. harry reid the majority reader in the setting thes. the president's first major speech out of washington this term is going to be on immigration. so what i'm wondering is, whether you feel, this has been a rhetorical priority. i wonder if it's a legislative priority. >> let me say this, this has always been an uphill fight this. has never been easy. this is the hardest of the hard. now will it only be assault weapons? no, most likely. there will be a package put together, if assault weapons is left out of the package and i'm a member of judiciary number two in seniority, i've been assured by the leader that i'll be able to do it as an amendment on the floor, which is the way i did it in 1993, so that doesn't bother me. i have seen weapons spawn and grow and now in the hands of youngernd younger people over these years. i think you reach a point as i said earlier where enough is enough. do military-style assault w
. senator joe manchin, i want to open with what he said to us last sunday. >> on just gun s alone will not go anywhere. >> it has to be comprehensive. and that's what i told everybody, has to be a comprehensive approach. >> senator manchin says this has to be more than a gun ban. senator harry reid, saying i don't think this is going to pass. he doesn't want to bring up something that doesn't pass. major speech out of washington, this term, on immigrant. what i'm wondering is if you feel this has been a rhetorical priority. i wonder if it's a legislative priority. >> let me say this. this has been an uphill fight. this has never been easy. this is the hardest of the hard. now, will it only be assault weapons? no. most likely. there will be a package put together if assault weapons is left out of the package or i'm a member of the judiciary number two in seniority. i've been assured by the majority leader i will be able to do it as an amendment on the floor. i did it in 1993. that doesn't particularly bother me. what does bother me, i have seen weapons spawn and grow and in the han
in new york next week and john huntsman and west virginia democratic snow joe manchin. it is one thing for groups like that to talk together, robert but another thing to be in the beltway and working ninthings o. the president will not get into a discussion about the debt ceiling and it has to be taken care of and we have to pay our bills. is there anything that suggests to you consensus on any kind? >> no, it does not. you have speaker boehner saying i'm not going to negotiate one or one. what you just said is unfortunate, he doesn't want to have a discussion about the debt ceiling. this is a two-prong process, constitutionally the president is right, congress racked up these bills if you will, but the president signed them into law, both republican and democrat. both people have gone through this dance, if you will and it's a horrible dance. so what these leaders need to do is figure it out. after all, that's what we paid them to do and just as importantly, that's what they've been elected to do, figure this out. >> good to see you, thank you. >>> also making news this morning, the o
of staff for west virginia senator joe manchin and joe watkins was an aid with president george h.w. bush. i want to start with you becausas we have seen, former congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband mark kelly this week launching a super pac americans for possible solutions or responsible solutions, excuse me, other interest groups, mayors against illegal guns are led and financed by new york mayor michael bloomberg. they're raising a lot of money. one thing i want to point out is that gabby giffords' new group, the americans for responsible solutions has gotten a $1 million donation from a couple in texas and trial lawyers there who were politically active. do you think this type of money and this type of support can beat the nra at its own game? >> i don't think it's a matter of plague partisan politics or anti-nra. i think every american wants to make sure that we have schools that are safe and that our kids are protected no matter what and any cause, and i don't think it's a matter of liberal, moderate or conservative in this matter because it's about human beings and about am
this debate? >> i think joe manchin's point in that commercial wasn't the rifle. it was shooting obama's energy policy with the rifle. i'll let joe speak for himself. >> you look at connecticut where this awful, sickening crime occurred. everything that guy did was illegal already. if -- it's just a reminder if you make having guns fwens the law, the only people that will have guns are criminals. that's the way -- that's the result in connecticut. >> the supreme court has already ruled in the heller case that there can be exceptions, that the d.c. gun law was unconstitutional, but other assault weapon bans might not be unconstitutional. the constitution does not preclude other restrictions on guns, and background checks. and other measures that are considered and have widespread support. do you think that republicans should take a closer look at some of the other options in the aftermath of newtown? >> again, i think the most productive thing being talked about here is how do we prevent mentally ill deranged people from getting firearms or any other dangerous weapons. that is a useful
, tremendous integrity and very popular. >> two new englanders though i say also senator joe manchin of west virginia, keep an eye on him, and now we pause to honor our fellow americans who serve and sacrifice. this week the pentagon released the name of one soldier killed in afghanistan. and finally, "your voice" this week. diana biederman asks today's question. why do we have inaugural ceremonies for two-term presidents? it says they all have to be sworn in. always an excuse for some party. this year has been scaled way back from ten balls to two but second inaugurations have been a time for some first. african-americans joined the parade for the first time at abraham lincoln's second inaugural. woodrow wilson's second, women were included 52 years later. harry truman's 1949 inaugural was the first on television and in 1997, americans could watch the swearing in online for the first time of bill clinton. tweet me your political questions to @gstephanopoulos plus greta is going to answer your questions for this week's web extra. thanks for spending your sunday with us. check out "world news
chairs of the no label movement, joe manchin and former presidential candidate jon huntsman. thank you both for joining us and, senator manchin, let me begin with you. the motto of no label, stop fighting and start fixing. admirable goals, but what is your specific goal and how do you intend to get there? >> george, basically jon and i were talking about this earlier, you know, i've been there two years in the senate and i have yet to have a bipartisan meeting that's been organized where republicans and democrats in the senate sit down and work through their problems. think about just in the senate we don't have that type of dialogue going on from democrats and republicans. we don't even know our colleagues over in the house. no labels gives us that venue. >> and ambassador huntsman, there's going to be a test of that strategy on so many issues including the issue of preventing gun violence one month after newtown. i was surprised to see there's no mention of that issue on the no labels website. pretty conspicuous in its absence. is that a punt? >> this is not about finding the end poi
a-rated democrats from the nra, joe manchin, obviously, bob casey of pennsylvania, both may be able to add to that pressure specifically as it speaks to the issue of gun control. >> david, i want to talk to you about women and not in a brent musberger sort of way but a real way. you write about the durt of women in the cabinet and susan rice and fell apart and that's not been replaced by anybody and looking at three women for 15 cabinet posts. not the diversity we would expect from obama that we would hope for from obama and it seems or a little late in the game to make up for that. so is he just going to be behind the eight ball now? >> well, you know, it is interesting because women's issues as you know is a big issue in the campaign. the president made it an issue and as did the republicans and the president trying to drive a wedge and won 55% of the women's vote and i think he made the point, you know, he wanted women's health issues and equality in pay and same time with the departure of hillary clinton, you are looking at a national security cabinet all men and there is concer
, something that my co-chair joe manchin, that was here a moment ago, said doesn't even exist in congress today. no ability, no venue by which you can actually sit down with the opposition party to compare notes, so i will tell you, andrea, our nation works better when we have a viable two-party system. that's in the interest of long-term discussions and the american people. so i think it's in the interest of the american people that the republican party gets back on its feet. that it recalibrates from a policy standpoint, that it begins to build bridges to some of the lost demographics. it can be done, and i think this country is better served by a strong two-party system. >> what is your reaction to some of the criticisms of -- that colin powell just made on "meet the press" with david gregory about some of the code words that were used during the last campaign, the fact that republican candidates and former governors did not disavow the birther movement and spoke of the president as being "lazy" and using words like that? >> we are where we are, and we've been through an election cycle
're dealing with a $500 billion front and cut, you would be shaving off quite a bit. but senator joe manchin has been out, showing the chart. u.s. seen the defense budget growth over the years. the number of american -- you have seen the defense budget to grow over the years. i suspect the contract and dimensions of this will be hit very hard. you'll be cutting through a lot of muscle to try to keep the bones safe. guest: senator hagel said recently that the pentagon was bloated. he says it has not been a strategic review in years. the department of defense is already cut. there's already been chairman os martin dempsey has said that if the sequester goes through are some cuts go through, -- or some cuts through -- the pentagon has been thinking about these things for the past four years. host: we're taking an in-depth look into senator chuck hagel, and we're using a lot of material from our video library. a lot of it is available to you as well. -- all of it is available to you as well. c-span.org. from 2006, senator hagel had this to say about the middle east.

. senator joe manchin, west virginia democrat, and a-rated member of the national rifle association, says legislation can't be made with a narrow scope that only addresses gun regulation or the mental health system. >> as adults, we have a responsibility to sit down and have an adult dialogue and try to have a comprehensive package that works. >> reporter: but the nra is gearing up for battle. >> you don't want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say that the likelihood is that they are, they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> reporter: vice president joe biden met with several stake holders in the gun debate last week. he's expected to make recommendations to the president on how to reduce gun violence by tuesday. in the meantime, one senator is calling on stores that sell firearms to take the first step. >> i'm urging our country's major gun retailers, like wal- mart and sports authority, to suspend sales of modern assault- style weapons until congress is able to fully consider and vote on legislation to curb gun violence. >> repor
, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of a universal background check. nra households, 85%, chris. we have said that number many times. but going back to this group of senators who are working on this deal reportedly, tom coburn, mark kirk, we know his ties to illinois and the chicago area, of course. and chuck schumer and we have seen legislation in new york, even i just saw a report that governor cuomo approval rating took a dip as a result of some people believing he went too far with new legislation in the state but when you look at this group, these four men here, are they the best faces to at least get something moving coming to background checks? set aside legislation on assault weapons. but just on background checks and widely supported. >> i mean, i think it's a good diverse mix in terms of if you will, centrist conservative democrats, moderate democrats. you ha
of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a legislative challenge for the white house to push forward whatever proposals they develop and get those passed in congress. >> are there people in the house and senate who have sort of cred on both sides they think they can use. we have heard a number of gun owners, people who have ratings with the nra saying things like you don't need an assault weapon to go duck hunting. >> you know, there are some. i think we'
think we need to do our job. >> senator joe manchin, thank you so much for coming on the program. >> thank you, chris. >>> well, it was a fun ride while it lasted. gas prices though are on the rise again. cnbc's mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. >> chris, after months of dropping we're all enjoying that ride. it seems that gas prices are creeping up again. you've got at the moment the average u.s. price of a regular gallon, it surged about seven cents in the last three weeks. sitting at $3.30 a month ago, chris, we were at $3.27. mind you, we are still lower than the $3.39 of a year ago. diesel, i do believe, is remaining unchanged at around $3.96 a gallon. if you want to know where the highest prices are, lowest prices are, of the places surveyed in 48 states, salt lake city has the average lowest price, long island new york has the highest at $3.75. unlucky us. >> cnbc's mandy drury. thank you. >> thank you. >>> forget about who took home those golden globe statues. e entertainment got a look at the best dressed. here are the favorites. videoey deschane in red.
recommendation to president obama later this week. former secretary of state colin powell and senator joe manchin both weighing in today. >> i'm a gun owner. i'm a believer in the second amendment. i know the amendment rather thoroughly. i know the issue of the well-regulated militia. but at the same timeresponsibil constitution and bill of rights to protect our people and with respect to assault rifles i see no need for bush mav in the hands of an individual person who might be deranged. go out toy range and fire a bushmaster. >> you can't push law abiding gun owners away. they have to be at the table. and you need to find out what their preference of protecting that. and what i would say to all of my friends that are nra and gun owners, that there's no way that they're going to take your second amendment rights away. that won't happen. >> let's get right to nbc news white house correspondent peter alexander. with another good day to you, peter. the vice president's going to be reporting his findings to the president tuesday. do we have an idea what he might be recommending? >> well, he sort of
rounds or more plus universal background checks. senator joe manchin a lifelong member of the nra is open to such a plan and would like to see more. >> i would like to hear from them why you need a larger magazine. you can't push the nra and law-abiding gun owners, you have have them at the table. what are their preference protecting that. >> reporter: nra has made it clear it is not in favor of any ban on assault weapons. so the up tense battle on both sides will likely continue, martha. martha: what are we seeing from the nra as what they think will happen on the president's plan to curb gun violence? what are they proposing? what would they give? >> reporter: good question. the nra believes the president will not have enough support in congress to support any type of ban on assault weapons or even high-capacity magazines for that matter. the nra, martha, believes the root of the problem is mental illness. therefore it is pushing for a measure to keep guns out of the hands of those who have been adjudicated as people with mental illness problems. >> i think it is a false security to thi
then you should listen up to what center joe manchin had to say from west virginia where he had the courage to say he recognized the need to review these issues of gun safety measure hes or senator warner from virginia or senator casey from pennsylvania. >> they are all from the east coast. my question is have you heard anybody from the midwest talk about it? >> absolutely. senator tester from montana has weighed in on the issue, as well. the point is these are senators from strong nra states. and they understand the need to address this issue. >> and that's why harry reid doesn't want to take it on because he is from a strong nra state because in las vegas, they are have christmas wreathes made out of bullet casings. i saw it when i was there in december. >> but the point simply is this -- >> harry reid has a local skin in the game. >> sadly we have to wrap this up, but i hope -- >> carol, if i can -- >> i got go. >> grneorge herbert walker bushs a great man. >> agree on that. >> me, too. robert zimmerman, and that navarro, thank you so much. >>> gun control activists take on walmart. a ra

, thank you very much. >>> joe manchin of west virginia complained the hagel confirmation had become, and i'm quoting him now, a toxic process where there is once again quoting, guilt by conversation. i'm joined by gloria borger up on capitol hill, dana bash. gloria, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel and some people think he didn't necessarily help himself. >> no. i think he didn't quell any of the skepticism about him and in talking to a couple of republican senators on the hill, the response that i got was that he seemed unsteady in many of his answers, even on the most predictable questions, as jessica pointed out. he was clearly going to get a question from john mccain on the iraq surge. he didn't answer that to mccain's liking. and later, you know, on that issue of iran, which we knew was going to be a flashpoint for him, he seemed to confuse the president's policy. let's take a listen to that. >> i have just been handed a note that i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, it meant to say that i obvious cannily his position
